Oklahoma City police are looking for a busy armed robber who knocked over two convenience stores early this morning.

He hit this circle K near S.W. 59th Street and May Avenue and then again at the Qmax at S.W. 29th Street and Agnew.

Mike Hadgi, the owner of the QMax convenience store says the robber walked in like any other customer. But then he flashed the gun to his clerk, even though surveillance cameras were pointed right at him. Hadgi says the robber not only robbed the store, he robbed his clerk too.

"He took the money," said Hadgi. " He took his wallet and took his cellular phone and he had about $40 in his pocket too."

Now, both Hadgi and police hope the surveillance pictures of the robber will help them not only identify him, but track him down, before he strikes again.

"Well we don't want him to rob another place," said Hadgi. "We need him off the streets."

Hadgi tells News 9 they had just been robbed a few days before. But in that case, the crook was caught. And he is hoping it will be the same in this case.

Police say the robber was last seen driving a newer model red 4 door car, but the make and model are unknown. If you recognize that man or know who he is, call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300.
